Do you have trouble navigating your current business website on newer devices? Have clients mentioned that they’ve had trouble using your website?

Your Site Doesn’t Work With Some Smartphones
With the ways in which smartphones keep evolving, mobile friendly web design is more important than ever. Older sites will not render properly on newer cell phones and tablets, meaning that some customers will not be able to access your site, and may be tempted to go to a competitor as a result. With these types of devices representing more than half of all web traffic, and poor website performance on cell phones and tablets can harm your SEO rankings, meaning your website will appear lower and lower in Google searches
Your Site Looks Old
When it comes to cars, clothes, and music, styles change quickly. The internet is no different. When you click a link to a website, the style and layout of the site are clear indicators of how old the site is, and a site that is even just 5 years old can stick out like a sore thumb. A new site with more modern features, like full-width banners, simpler navigation, and a cleaner design is more pleasing on the eye and – more importantly – easier for your customers to use properly.
Your Site is Difficult to Update with New Media
The Content Management System (CMS) is the interface that allows you to upload blog posts, pictures, videos, and other new media to your website. If your website uses an older CMS, it can be difficult for the media you want to add to your website to load and function properly. A modern CMS interface can allow you to easily upload new media, giving your customers simple access to the media without technical issues.
